Shown is one of the vehicles stolen by members of the Atlanta-area “Bandits” street gang during a series of violent carjackings over a three-week period beginning in late December 2012.
From late December 2012 to mid-January 2013, a series of violent carjackings in and around the Atlanta metro area shook the region and caused a significant violent crime spike. But a partnership between the FBI and law enforcement authorities in Cobb, Fulton, Gwinnett, and DeKalb Counties resulted in the dismantlement of the dangerous gang of criminals responsible.
And seven of those criminals were recently sentenced to federal prison terms, including the leaders of the so-called Bandits street gang, Ladarious Gibbs and Derek C. Turner.

Today, the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program released details on more than 5.4 million criminal offenses reported by law enforcement through the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) during 2014. According to NIBRS 2014, 6, 520 law enforcement agencies—charged with protecting more than 93 million U.S. inhabitants—reported 4, 759, 438 incidents involving 5, 489, 485 offenses, 5, 790, 423 victims, and 4, 414, 016 known offenders.
Unlike data reported through UCR’s traditional Summary Reporting System (an aggregate monthly tally of crimes) and published annually in Crime in the United States, NIBRS data goes much deeper because of its ability to provide circumstances and context for crimes. It includes all offenses within a single incident as well as additional aspects about each event, like location, time of day, relationship between victim and offender, and whether the incident was cleared. NIBRS also includes data on 23 offense categories made up of 49 offenses, as opposed to the Summary Reporting System’s 10 Part I offenses. Ultimately, NIBRS will improve the detail and overall quality of crime data, which will help law enforcement and communities around the country use resources more strategically and effectively.

Today in Washington, D.C., the FBI took part in a briefing announcing the U.S. State Department’s launch of a publication that outlines the emerging negative impacts of the illicit tobacco trade and the whole-of-government approach to combating it. According to, this low-risk, high-reward, often transnational criminal activity is a lucrative crime for some terrorist groups and a potential revenue source to finance acts of terror. It also provides funding for other criminal activities—including money laundering and trafficking in humans, weapons, drugs, antiquities, diamonds, and counterfeit goods—and it can encourage organized criminal enterprises, terrorist organizations, and other threat networks to work together. Additionally, the illicit tobacco trade deprives governments of tax revenues, causing billions of dollars in losses annually.
The Bureau was represented at the briefing by Special Agent Eric B. Ives, head of the FBI’s Transnational Organized Crime - Threat Financing Program, which has as its primary objective the building of partnerships with global law enforcement agencies and the private sector through operational, intelligence, and training initiatives to combat illicit trade of all kinds. He discussed how illicit trade in tobacco, pharmaceuticals, diamonds, and cultural property is often a gateway to organized crime, corruption, terrorism, and other crimes that fall under the FBI’s jurisdiction, and it has serious economic and national security implications. The Bureau focuses its investigative resources primarily on illicit trade matters with suspected ties to terrorism and/or large national and international criminal enterprises. The new report contains several examples of FBI-led multi-agency investigations into counterfeit cigarettes and other illegal commodities which led to dozens of indictments in several different countries.
The illicit trade in tobacco publication was released last week during a meeting of the Interagency Working Group to Combat Illicit Tobacco, an entity created earlier this year to address the rise of illicit tobacco as a major international criminal threat. The group is made up of a number of federal agencies—including the State Department and the FBI—and representatives from Europol and half-a-dozen foreign countries.
Hosting the briefing was the multinational Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD), which recently published a broader report on illicit trade called
Four American men were recently sentenced to prison for attempting to buy kidnapped women to serve as sex and domestic slaves.
Evidence seized in the human trafficking case, such as these restraints, revealed that the subjects were fully prepared to buy kidnapped women and hold them against their will.
During the course of an international human trafficking investigation, FBI agents uncovered disturbing information: American men were making what appeared to be serious inquiries about buying kidnapped women from Asia to serve as sex and domestic slaves in response to an advertisement from Malaysia on a now-defunct bondage website.
The online solicitation turned out to be a money-making scam, but the response from potential customers in the U.S.—nearly 200 inquiries during a two-month period—was alarming. After the fraudulent advertisement was removed from the website and the FBI referred the matter to Malaysian authorities, the FBI devised an undercover operation targeting the same clientele.
More than 100 people responded, and most dropped out quickly. But four men were anxious to proceed—and willing to pay thousands of dollars for a sex slave—which landed them all in prison.
